In Adobe Reader, go to "Edit" -> "Preferences" -> "General" -> "Select Default PDF Handler", and choose the right one to recover the right file association. Note that this happens because WinEdt launches by default the program associated with .pdf files. Anyway, from within WinEdt, you can go to "Options" -> "Execution Modes" -> "PDF Viewer" and choose the ...
